    Pedunculate (Quercus robur) and sessile (Quercus petraea) oak, dominant species in European hardwood forests, are declining in many regions throughout Europe and extreme climatic events (summer drought, winter frost) are considered to be key factors contributing to this decline via a negative effect on wood formation. An extensive sampling of scattered oak trees was undertaken in the White Carpathians in order to determine the association between growth in diameter and climate over the last 100 zears. The late wood growth of oak trees, growing on deep calcium-rich soils, which dry out in summer, is mainly associated with rainfall in May–June, while early wood growth is associated with previous autumn and winter temperatures. The results provide support for a crucial role of climate change (decline in rainfall and increase in summer temperatures over the last three decades) among other external factors in the high number of oaks dying prematurely in the White Carpathian grassland.
